One of the reasons why Seattle is popular in Japan is because of Ichiro who plays for the Seattle Mariners, possibly Obitsu's reason to come to Sakura Con.

Many mini Kewpies!
last year at Anime Expo or not... Oh well, it was still fun looking around their cozy little booth. They keep having new things showing up the next day which prompted me to spend more money, heheh.
